Community Resilience Case Study: Physician Leaders of the African-American Response Circle

Back to Package

Recorded Tuesday, June 1, 2021 

Leaders of the African-American Response Circle (AARC) will join us in a panel to discuss the political, cultural, and socioeconomic factors that led to exacerbations of health disparities in the African-American community during the COVID-19 pandemic. In their discussion they will identify leveraging points that can help mobilize resources for supporting community resilience. Additionally, they will describe the critical ingredients for a successful community-based alliance that bridges healthcare delivery with other sectors such as public health, educational, and religious institutions.
